Need.More.Space. Message from gopro app when importing camera files to harddrive

three different gopro cameras. 2 no problems in the gopro app importing the files to a folder. The third camera SC card(no matter what camera it' put in) brings up a error panel that says: Need.More.Space "try freeing up some space on your hard drive". "got it".

This is a brand new iMac with 3 TB drive!!! got plenty of space. Even when mounts the SD card on the desktop, when I attempt to drag and drop the files (which do show up) to a folder, I get an error message that says: The item “GOPR0061.MP4” can’t be copied because there isn’t enough free space.

Again... plenty of HD space on the desktop computer. After trouble shooting this SD card amongst three different GoPro cameras, all giving the same error message, I'm wondering if there is an issue with how GoPro formatted card... or left some message on the card?

Picture uploaded of error message in the GoPro App.

Re: Need.More.Space. Message from gopro app when importing camera files to harddrive

Hi, I have the hero4session, I am using a windows laptop. I ran into the same problem. After fidgiting around with the app and trying to figure out what was wrong, I got nowhere. So I exited the app and went back in and it worked... so try that i guess. It is reallly random.

 

P:S I have the videos being imported the video file.

Same issue here- I have 130GB free on my machine, there are only 30GB on the camera, but it says there's not enough space.  WTF?
